The Dos and Don’ts from AAHOA’s Secretary; Plus, No Serious ALIS Trump Talk

This past year Jagruti Panwala started a magnificent journey when she was named secretary of AAHOA. In just a few years she will chair the organization, keeping her busy for the next few years. We discuss legislative issues, her role in the organization, balancing a career managing several businesses, including home ownership. How does she do it all, all while advancing the goals of the largest association in hospitality? We find out. We’re thinking super powers, but you decide. (NOTE: This interview was conducted before the latest presidential election.)

But first, Glenn and Bruce Ford discuss the Americas Lodging Investment, a major hotel industry financial conference, held this week in Los Angeles. Strangely, there was bizarrely little talk of the new president or the administration. They posit why and also address the state of the business including new hotels coming to a market near you.
